Who we work with...

Mental health issues are an important part of many criminal cases; the incarceration rates of the mentally ill in America are staggering. At JLongtin Law, we know that everyone deserves a zealous defense, especially those in a vulnerable state because of their physical conditions or past traumatic experiences.

This can include a wide array of issues:
Addiction
PTSD
Traumatic Brain Injury
Schizophrenia
Dissociative Identity Disorder
Intellectual Disabilities
Bipolar Disorder
Personality related conditions, such as borderline or anti-social personality disorders
our approach

We search for holistic solutions for our clients.

Our firm provides a comprehensive understanding of issues surrounding competency, insanity, and other mental health related defenses to crimes.
We pride ourselves on treating the whole client through the incorporation of a social worker and/or mental health specific investigator to help with your case.
We strive to use the legal process to gain our clients better access to treatment, as well as housing if necessary.

We're experienced mental health advocates.

Our attorneys are experienced in providing both first and second chair services to cases involving mental illness and developmental disability; we are happy to consult for other attorneys in the community to aid them in navigating mental health specific legal proceedings.

JLongtin Law will ensure that the judge, jury, and prosecutor understand your unique position, and how it affects your rights and your case.
